Mole Remedies

Last Modified on Dec 12, 2014

Many natural treatments are effective for safely eliminating moles. These treatments include the topical application of tonics including apple cider vinegar and others. These treatment options are safe but may still cause slight skin irritation if not applied appropriately.

What Are Moles?

Moles are common growths on the skin that typically appear black to brown in color. Moles may occur individually or in groups anywhere on the skin. Most moles appear in the early years of one’s life but may continue changing or growing later in life.

Moles are caused by the growth of several cells in a cluster rather than being spread out. As the cells are concentrated so is the pigment naturally found in the skin, causing the dark color of moles. Additional life changes may also cause the change of moles.

Natural Mole Removal Remedies

Mole removal involves the careful application of effective treatments. Apple cider vinegar and garlic can be applied directly to a mole and function essentially to burn the mole to eliminate it. Additionally, iodine functions in the same way but is much less abrasive than vinegar or garlic.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a natural diluted acid. As such, the vinegar works to safely burn a mole and removes it. Treatment generally involves daily application of apple cider vinegar to the mole until it has turned black and become a scab that falls off.

Garlic

Garlic is an herb used for treating a variety of health conditions. Concerning moles, garlic’s natural enzymes break down the clusters of cells that cause moles. Additionally, garlic works to naturally lighten the pigmentation in moles.

Iodine

Iodine is a naturally occurring element that aids in the regulation of the thyroid and other hormones. When applied topically to a mole, iodine penetrates the cells and naturally eradicates them.

While moles are common, their appearance may be disconcerting for some individuals. Natural treatments can effectively eliminate moles without the need for surgery or other more invasive treatments.

ACV, Garlic and Iodine   2  0   

Posted by Jessica (Kansas City, MO) on 08/07/2007

[YEA]  After reading the mole remedies on this site, I decided to seperately test the Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic and Iodine on three different moles. These are my results:

ACV--It completely removed one mole in 5 days. After "scratching" the mole with a clean needle, I soaked a small piece of cotton in ACV and placed it on the mole with a bandaid on it overnight (did this for 5 nights). During the day, I dabbed ACV on it a few times. During this time period, the once raised mole (the size of a pea) became flat, then black, then peeled off like a scab. The only problem was that I did not protect the skin around the mole with vaseline, because I couldn't get the bandaid to stick to my skin if I used it. Because of this, the skin around the mole became quite burned. It looks pretty bad! I'm trying to heal it up with Coconut Oil. But, personally I'd rather have a little burned skin than a nasty mole!

Garlic--the garlic worked pretty fast on another pea-sized mole, but again, I burned myself by not protecting the surrounding skin. And I really disliked smelling like garlic all day! The garlic worked in two days. The mole puffed up and blistered and then came off like a scab. Beware--this stuff really burns, so watch out for the healthy skin!

Iodine--I had a slightly-raised mole that basically flaked off after 7 days of using iodine on it 3 times per day. It takes a little longer to work than garlic or ACV, but NO burning!

With each of these remedies, I scratched the mole with a needle before applying the stuff. I think that helps to really get the substance in the mole in order to breat it down. Also, where the moles have fallen off I have scars. One of the rather large moles made a keloid-type (red, raised) scar. I'm applying Coconut Oil to all of these hoping to speed along the process. Finally, I tried these remedies on moles on my body--not my face. I can't recommend doing that, unless you understand you will have a noticable scar.

Hi Jessica, I tried the garlic method on my moles for 2 days only. I do not perceive any sign of them becoming scabs, rather, they become more protruding and bigger! Is that normal? I get a bit worried and feel like trying the iodine method instead. Any advice? Thanks much.

[SIDE EFFECTS]   Hi, I'm trying the acv thing now after reading your account. I have a pea-sized mole on my cheek, and I think the acv is really working, but I was not careful enough the first time I applied it and got on my cheek around the mole. It left tiny little spots on my face that look like burns... is this something will fade with time?? I've been using aloe to try to clear it up. Thanks for any info.

For those who got burned with the ACV on the skin surrounding the mole, did the redness and irritation finally heal. If so, how long did it take and what did you use to speed it up. Thanks, Jen

I have removed several moles with ACV. Only one took more than a couple of days. I put moisted qtip and held till I could really feel it working. Would do this a couple times a day making sure only to stay on the mole or wart. After I felt like it was gone I cleansed and put hydrogen peroxide,.made sure to keep it clean and they healed in a couple of days. It is a good idea to put a little vasaline around the area you are going to treat to protect from getting burned. Just be sure you dont get it on the wart or mole. I would not cover it while healing as it tends to not heal as fast and will have trouble scabbing so it can heal.

I used the cheapest Apple Cider Vinegar I found in the supermarket. In fact it only says cider vinegar on the bottle. Don't know whether it was suppose to say apple in front?! Either way, the cheapest Apple Cider Vinegar got rid of my moles after about a week. Read my comments below though (and any other comments) about the scarring afterwards.

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]   I have been using ACV now for seven days on my disgusting moles, some are flat and some are raised. It took 4 days for me to notice any difference, but now most of them have shrivelled and are black with a scab over them. There is pink rings around where the moles are and is quite painful more than likely due to the acid in the vinegar. It seems to relieve the pain if I put moisturiser over it and aloe vera during the day. I only put Apple Cider Vinegar on at night after my shower before I go to bed.

This rot that people are saying to cut your moles to let the Apple Cider Vinegar in is pure dribble. Also apparently when they are scabbing DO NOT pick at the scabs, as it will lead to scarring. I'll keep on this website, till they are fully gone. Hope this has been some help :)

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]   After reading the posts I decided to give the remedy a try on a mole ive had on my nose since I was born. The mole was raise and very darkly pigmented, about the size of a pea.

I used a safety pin to make laserations on te surface of the mole and at the base. Fair warning, there was bleeding and stinging. Using a cotton swab I applied petroleum jelly around the perimeter of the mole. Throughout the day, I dabbed the mole with vinegar, every couple of hours or so.

At night, I cut a thin slice of garlic about the size of the mole. Using the point of the knife I poked at it to get it juicy. I placed the little garlic piece over the mole and secured it into place with a bandaid. I left it on over night.

I repeated this method for five days. On the second day the mole began to scab over. After five days the mole looked pretty shriveled and was completely scabbed.

I let the scab fall off and heal. The mole was not completely removed, but I would say it is about 65% gone and the voulume of it was reduced significantly. I will be repeating the procedure to further remove the mole.

When you guys say "roughen up" the area first before applying ACV... do you just scratch the mole with a needle but make sure it doesnt bleed or what? Can you be a little more descriptive? Thank you.

I found that instead of using a needle or a pin to roughen the edges before you apply ACV or garlic, using a nail file works well too and you won't bleed. Gently scratch the surface but make sure you dont't get the surrounding skin! Once the scab is formed don't pick it! Apply coconut oil or shea butter over the scab and surrounding skin to minimize scarring! Good luck

What do you guys think about dabbing some more avc or garlic in the crater, to prevent the mole from coming back? I presume it would leave a bigger scar... But it should also "burn" the root.. Right? Anyone tried it?

[YEA]   ACV worked on a big ugly mole on my chest. I scratched until it bled a bit and then dabbed it with ACV 2 or 3 times a day, covering it with a band-aid. About two weeks later the mole was gone, BUT, the scar was pretty noticeable from both the mole and bandage for about a month. Now, I can hardly see a scar at all.... Surely looks better than that awful mole!

For those planning to use ACV on their moles: roughing up the mole ahead of time is completely unnecessary and does not help the process at all. Just apply the ACV to the mole for a few days and you will get results. You do need to be careful of the skin around the mole, though.

To Nadia from Malaysia, You state you had a mole, tried treating it with ACV, garlic, and other things including bleach The mole came back and now you have a dark scar.

You NEED to see a dermatologist. You are playing around with what may now be skin cancer. Skin cancer can and will cause other cancers. Quit playing around and have a qualified doctor take a look at what is going on. You have been playing around with this for over 6 months now with no improvement, but a worsening of what may now be skin cancer. A dermatologist can effectively resolve this.

Anti-Dandruff Shampoo   2  1   

Posted by Sandra (Vancouver, Bc, Canada) on 06/10/2013

[YEA]  I've used anti-dandruff shampoo first for a small fungal spot on my shoulder. I soon found it's great for all kinds of skin issues, though should be used sparingly on sensitive areas like the face. I've successfully treated acne, rashes, and a lifelong redness I had under my nose. I suggested my dad try it for his awful roseacia (not sure how to spell) on his forehead, and in 2 days the bumps were gone. They haven't come back yet, 3 months later. Redness of the skin will persist for a couple days. Basically, the salisyllic acid removes the top layer of skin and destroys any bumps very quickly.

Method of use- I take a pea sized drop on my finger tip and apply to a small area like lotion. You will get used to how much you can use based on skin sensitivity. My dad put maybe 1/8 of a teaspoon on his forehead (including some scalp as he is balding). When I used it under my nose for redish skin, I got my finger wet before putting a small drop (half a pea) on my fingertip. This made spreading a small amount easier, and diluted it to some extent. It almost developed suds/bubbles from the shampoo, but not quite. I consider this the greatest discovery! My doctor told me it's good for fungus on the feet and toenails, bearing in mind that toenail fungus is often unlikely to permanently vanish. At least you can keep it from spreading and ruining your ability to wear cute shoes! Good luck!

[YEA]  Anti-dandruff shampoo cures moles. All you need is to scratch your mole, massage and leave the shampoo over the scratched mole. It will make a scab and it will fell off. Scaring is minimal. Keep applying the shampoo until the scab falls by itself in about 2-4 weeks.

I have tried all methods and applying Anti-dandruff shampoo to a scratched mole until the scab falls is by far the best method.

[YEA]   I personally haven't tried the dandruff shampoo on my moles but I have had really good success using acv. I used the kind from my kitchen on one which worked with a little burning (not bad). I used organic acv with mother on another mole and it worked without the burning. I swear by it and now have a lot of people using to get rid of their moles! A note about dandruff shampoo, I suggested to my sister-in-law that she use it for rosacea and it worked like a charm! She uses it twice per week. Good luck!

Because this remedy will help many people and is the best of all, I like to give more help how I use it. I take a needle and scratch the center of the mole not healthy skin. Usually there is a little bleeding. Then I apply a brand of strong anti-dandruff shampoo daily (3 times per day usually). It scabs after second or third day. I keep applying the shampoo until the scab falls. Before you answer if it works or not please make sure that you follow my remedy. Thank you.

Anti-dandruff shampoo might work due to the fact the most common ingredient being salicylic acid which promotes turnover/exfoliation. I used the same on a recurring boil and it eventually shrank to never return. But be careful about sls and sles, I'd recommend using a face product that contains salicylic acid instead.

Apple Cider Vinegar   128  11

Hi, I have multiple moles on my face. They are all flat and their sizes range from a grain of salt to a dot made from a generic fine-tipped sharpie.

I have decided to use apple cider vinegar to remove them and I just want to know some tips to quicken the process and/or reduce the side-effects. Also I was not able to find any posts about people removing FLAT moles successfully - all I found were for raised ones.

Dab a cue-tip in the apple cider vinegar and then dab it on a few moles before you go to bed...It will remove them in less than a month...I would just work with a few at a time...You may also dab the moles another convenient time of the day for you.

[SIDE EFFECTS]  Hello everyone!! I love this site and I truly enjoy reading everyone's comments about their mole removal journey. I've had a small (3mm-4mm), flesh-colored mole above my lip for several years now. It causes me so much stress and, after reading this blog for awhile, I decided to give the ACV method a try last week. I roughed up my mole with a sterilized needle and surrounded the mole with Vaseline. Afterwards, I placed a Q-tip dipped in ACV on the site. Within several minutes, the mole had shriveled up and turned into a black scab. I left it alone for almost a week; however, I noticed that the skin around the mole site was red and raised. (it almost looks like I have a life saver around the scab). The scab came off to reveal a crater area, but the skin around it is still inflammed and red! Did I remove the whole mole or did I just doughnut punch the center of it? I have a crater, which looks worse now that the skin around it is still raised and red. Please help! Did anyone else experience this? I have been placing antibiotic ointment and Neosporin in the crater. Any advice would be much appreciated. I am so terrified that I ruined my face forever!

[YEA]  Apple Cider Vinegar for Moles:

I did this for a small clear mole on the bridge of my nose. Worked perfectly with no burning, but I used vaseline around it. I'm trying it now with a larger, skin toned mole in the crease of my nose. This one is taking longer, on day two and still not crusting up. It's starting to get a little dry but that's it. Since this one is larger and clearly has a root, I think it will take longer.

Posted by Sarah (Salt Lake City, Utah) on 10/08/2014

So I need help. I have had this mole under my arm for 15 years, it is about the size of a pencil eraser that is located in my armpit and I found the idea about ACV. So I have been soaking a cotton ball and putting it on the mole and it has been about two weeks. However it only becomes white on parts of it and when I take the ACV off it just got back to normal. I have not "roughed it up", because now everytime I put on the ACV it stings for awhile. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to try and rough it up? It is hard with the position of the mole. Any suggestions?

Hi Sarah, I think roughing it up does help. My mole didn't turn into a scab until after I poked it with a needle, which I think helped the ACV get into the mole and scab quicker. As for your mole just changing back to normal after you take the ACV off, maybe you're not leaving it on long enough? Do you leave it on overnight? That is best.

Posted by Anon (US) on 09/04/2014

I put a piece of cotton soaked in raw apple cider vinegar over the mole and put a bandaid over it. It was on for most of a day. The mole was small, maybe an eighth of an inch, raised a little, dark on top. The next day I scratched at the mole and it came right off. It's all healed now. The skin around the mole was unaffected. There was a little pink crater where the mole was, it's all healed now. Awesome. Thank you all who helped me.

I have two other moles I did the same thing to, but they are larger. They didn't come off right away, they are maybe a quarter of an inch, and raised. They have all been there for years. I'm allergic to the bandaid sticky stuff, so there is a red inflamed area where the sticky part touched my skin. I used just the sticky tabs on the other two moles and it made big red marks on my skin. One mole got pale looking, now it's like a scab, but red around it from the bandaid still. The other is like a scab, but it's black looking and still raised, and not red around it. I put the bandaids on them for three days or so. They all burned like people say. I'm waiting for the redness to go away so I can do it again using the whole bandaid, this time, instead.

I am very happy not having "stuff" on my face.

Hey Anon! Thank you so much for your post! I am so sorry to bother you, but I recently tried this method to remove a small (3mm) flesh colored mole above my lip. I scratched up the mole with a sterilized needle, applied Vaseline around the site, then applied a q-tip dipped in Bragg's ACV to the mole. The mole instantly shriveled up and turned into a scab. I was so excited to see it literally dissolve before my eyes. Several days later, the scab came off and much to my dismay I have been left with a small crater (still continuing to scab) and red, raised skin/inflammed around the crater. I am so nervous that I have destroyed my face forever! Did you experience irritated/raised inflammed skin around your crater? How long did it take the crater to fill in? What does your scar look like now? Thank you so much for all of your help!

[YEA]  The ACV mole removal treatment really does work. I have started going bald so I decided to shave my head. When I did I observed that I had a huge, ugly, fleshy colored mole on the back of my head. I always knew it was there but you couldn't see it before since it was covered by hair. It was so ugly people actually commented on it and I felt pretty self conscious about it. I was always wearing a hat around to hide the foul looking thing. Plus it made shaving my head very difficult.

I began making inquiries and a doctor told me that it would have to be cut out and would require stitches since it was so big and was "quite deep" according to him. It was around this time that I discovered the ACV mole treatment from this website and I decided to give it a shot.

I used the organic ACV with the mother and every night, I roughed up the ugly mole; with a sterilized needle initially, and later, as it began to get smaller and flatter, with an emery board. I would then place a piece of a cotton make up pad soaked in ACV right on the mole, cover it with plaster and sleep with it on. I would take it off during the day to let the air get to it.

Within days it was scabbing but because it was so big, it kind of came of in pieces and all up, it took around three weeks before the disgusting thing was gone. It left a faint, pinkish scar but that is fading over time. It's pretty much unnoticeable now.

I have since used the treatment on small moles and they are usually done for in around four days.

This is a great remedy that really does work. It is cheap, easy and non-invasive. Thank you so much earth clinic!

Adam.

I started using the ACV treatment method to a fairly large mole on my face after reading all the positive things about it, plus I have nothing to lose if it doesn't. My mole is raised and near the corner of my mouth. It's about the size of the end of a cotton bud (Q tip) so fairly large and extremely annoying. I'm now on day 3 and it has black patches on it, some that's heading towards black and some that still needs working on, it does now seem to have shrunk a little bit which was starting to worry me as it had been swollen. I'm currently doing the over night cotton ball taped to it with breathable surgical tape and working a cotton bud around 3 times during the day so it can air, I believe the air is actually helping. I also use vaseline right around the skin which is protecting it so far. Has anyone else experienced this with their mole? I'm guessing that it's not turned entirely black as the mole isn't able to be constantly covered during the night due to the shape. Does it need to go all black?

I shall carry on as it's feeling very crisp. The look of it doesn't worry me to much as I have had this sucker for 36 years so am used to people looking. I think my expectations have lengthened regarding how long it will take too so I'm not feeling so worried about its progress.....at least it is progressing! :)

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]  I started using ACV to rid my face of a mole 3 days ago. I did use Vaseline around the area but I was very aggressive with the treatment since I'm going out of town next week. I kept a cotton ball soaked in ACV for pretty much a night and most of the next day. I really wanted this gone within 10 days, or at least gone enough that make up could cover. I have some pretty bad burns around where the mole was. The 'mole' is now very, very small and dark black so I think it worked on that, but my poor face around it :( I put aloe on it last night and I do believe it's helped. Is there anything else I can do to possibly speed up the healing of the burn? I think I'm more concerned about that getting better by next week than what's left of my mole. I do have sensitive skin I suppose...darn fair skin that comes with the red hair!

[SIDE EFFECTS]   ACV worked in getting rid of my moles, but there were scars from the scabbing process. I read reviews that aloe gel works in healing scars from moles.

I tried aloe plant to treat the scar, but not the scar from my mole, I tried it on my hand instead, and it stings.. the aloe.. so I washed it away because obviously it was not working. the next day I woke up with allergic reactions on my hand from the aloe.

I looked for products that are actually clinically tested, and there's this one gel, dermatix silicone gel, it definitely worked.. in about 2 weeks the scars are almost unnoticeable.

[YEA]  Yes, it works marvelously. I had a dark brown mole on my forehead about the size of half a grain of sea salt, that I had since I was a little kid. I was always insecure about it and wore my fringe down to cover it. I decided to try the ACV cure. It worked amazingly! The only scarring was just a slight mark that was completely gone after 6 weeks or so (it was only visible really up close). I have dark skin, so the mark would probably go away even quicker for someone with pale skin. And now, you can't even tell there used to be anything there!

Here's how I did it: I took a sewing needle (sterilized by swabbing it with rubbing alcohol) and gently scraped the surface of then mole - the instructions I read described it as "roughing it up". Then, I soaked a cotton tipped swab in the ACV and rubbed firmly on the mole for about three minutes. It stung a little bit but not bad enough to hurt. Then I soaked a piece of cotton pad in the ACV and placed it on the mole, securing it with first aid tape. Then I went to sleep with it on. When I woke up, I removed it and once again rubbed it with the soaked swab. It just began disintegrating away! It was amazing! There was a little tiny "piece" of the mole still left, so I repeated the process on it and left it on for a couple hours. After that it was completely gone. Of course there was a little wound, and that's normal because you're removing the skin and the root of the mole, but it really wasn't bad at all. I didn't even need to cover it. I just wore my hair down as usual until it wasn't visible anymore. You seriously can't tell anything was ever there. Try it!

[YEA]  I just experimented on my face the apple cider vinegar technique. In the last couple years I have developed a lot of new moles and sun spots on my body. one has developed on my face . It actually looked like a freckle for the longest time before it started to raise. I put apple cider vinegar on it. I took gauze tape and cut a hole about the size of the mole and maybe a tiny bit smaller, (so the Apple Cider Vinegar would not damage my skin). Side note: did not think about this the first night and burned the skin around the mole but I started noticing it come off after the first application. After all of the mole was off, it looked as if maybe I had a big pimple that I had been picking at. It wasn't pretty or easy to cover with concealer. But I also believe it's all about the recovery.

Did some research, took a couple things from dr Christopher's website on skin healing and abrasions. It recommended the bone and tissue formula for healing the skin tissue as well as the bone and tissue salve. I didn't want to buy the salve online so I took some from the capsules, added it to a little olive oil and used that topically. I would leave that on for a couple hours, rinse it off, then put calendula gel on it for overnight. Every morning, I took a collagen supplement with a vitamin c. The area is almost healed and you would never have known there was a mole there. But like I said it's all about the recovery. It might seem like a lot but I was a little frightened after the first night and permanent scarring so I don't want to take any chances with it looking worse than before. FYI, went to the dermatologist and he said he would not be able to remove if and if he did the scarring would be worse than the mole, and also told me collagen supplements would be useless. I work in the natural health and food industry and I proved everything wrong that he had told me, not to mention saving a lot of money instead of going to a plastic surgeon. Hope this helps. Complete success on my end!!!

I need help A.S.A.P. So this is my second day using avc and my mole is super black and the skin around it is really red. The mole flattened out and became black but hasn't scabbed over yet. Should I be patient for the scabbing over? because I haven't seen any yet! And I'm afraid to use more because of the burning around my mole! PLEASE HELP! I'm afraid I ruined my face :''''(

Dear Ashley,

If it were me, I would try coconut oil or castor oil on the mole and surrounding skin. Either (or both) should be soothing to the skin that is burned. Both have been reported to work on moles, it appears to take longer than the ACV. You could continue the ACV if you want, but be sure to put coconut oil or something on the skin around the mole before using the vinegar, to protect it. You might read the posts under moles where people used castor or coconut oil.

If you use the coconut oil, do use the cold pressed extra virgin stuff that smells like coconut. I think other processing will take out the things in it that are helpful.

Let us know how it goes!

[YEA]  Had a pretty big, ugly mole on my neck all my life. Put ACV cottom ball on it for an hour while I watched law and order, picked off mole. it bled for about 15 minutes and looks perfect, fine no redness, or burned skin. I but a little bacitracin on it. I could not be happier
